Join us for an inspiring evening where we welcome ADELE OUTTERIDGE of Studio West End, (which is now located at STATION ROAD | CREATIVE PRECINCT   241/F Station Road, Yeerongpilly 4105  Brisbane QLD).

We will also be welcoming LOU GILBERT, who is joining Adele for this presentation and will share more of her photobooks journey, which she presented for us via Zoom early in 2020. Her hand crafted photobook Fortitude photo book is featured in https://theantipodeanphotobook.com/2020/02/05/best-antipodean-photobooks-2019/. Lou’s handmade books which we saw in the much appreciated Zoom presentation were constructed whilst collaborating with Adele. Lou will be presenting after supper.

ADELE OUTTERIDGE gained her BSc from the University of Melbourne in 1967 then worked as an Experimental Scientist with CSIRO.  She studied with the School of Colour and Design in Sydney from 1984-88 and returned as lecturer, tutor.  She taught at the Ku-Ring-Gai Art Centre from 1983-89.  Adele now travels to all states and internationally lecturing and teaching.  Her work in artists’ books, printmaking, sculpture and drawing has been exhibited widely, is held in private and public collections and has appeared in major publications in Australia and overseas.

Studio West End was established in 1998 by Adele Outteridge and Wim de Vos (vale Dec 2018).  Since then they have provided a unique venue for teaching, mentoring, and exhibiting in a wide variety of visual art and design media.  Their work is exhibited, published and collected nationally and internationally.  “The teaching and practice of art is an integral part of our being.  Without it there is no cultural development for humanity”.  (Wim de Vos 2014)

Studio West End promotes a high standard of work practice in design and execution building skills and confidence in media including DRAWING, PAINTING, BOOK ARTS, PRINTMAKING, SCULPTURE AND ART HISTORY.  The studio is an exciting space full of vast quantities of art, books and stuff, collected by Wim and Adele over the years.  It is well lit, inspiring to work in, with equipment available for many media.

The Studio was originally situated in West End, first in the former Tristram’s factory, then in the former Peter’s Ice cream Factory.  It is now in a refurbished warehouse in the Yeerongpilly Corporate Park.
